This is amazing! Clean, spacious rooms, close to public transportation and excellent service. I stayed here for 3 nights and it was excellent. Public transportation is a breeze in Amsterdam and it takes 10 mins to get to downtown.
The hotel is a solid 5 stars with a pool and a fitness center. It has uniformed door staff and porters. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. It is a bit of a distance from downtown. We just walked in and cabbed it back
Viking River Cruises booked us in the hotel for 2 nights before we began our cruise. Could not have been happier with the hotel. Great location, every employee was smiling with friendly greetings. Employees took their time and answered all our questions. We had a shower leak. Called the front desk to report it. Within 5 minutes we had housekeeping at our door to clean it up and within 10 minutes maintenance was there to replace the bottom door seal. I was amazed how quickly they resolved the issue. I can't remember when I've stayed in a nicer, more friendly hotel than the Okura. We will stay there again when we're in Amsterdam. Also, the food was outstanding in all 3 hotel restaurants we ate.
We stayed at the Okura Hotel for a break away in May to Amsterdam. We found the check in staff extremely helpful and I was very impressed that they gave you maps of Amsterdam upon check in. We had an Executive room with access to the Nagomi spa and the lounge. We absolutely loved the room and the Nspresso machine was a lovely touch and the free water. The room was clean and very spacious and couldn't have asked for anything else. We used the lounge every evening to have a drink before we went out. Its defiantly worth paying the extra as it’s so quiet to sit in the lounge and relax. Overall we had an amazing stay and I would highly recommend this hotel. It’s not right in the centre of Amsterdam so if you are looking for something more central then this wouldn't be the hotel for you. If you are looking for luxury and great service then it would definitely be the Okura.
Nice well located clean hotel, very good breakfast. Only hitch for me was not being able to dial outside due to some issue with room phone. Nice gym and spa. Nice views from room of the river. Would definitely cone back.
My wife and I wanted to avoid the congestion of central Amsterdam, so we tried the Hotel Okura about two miles south of the central area. The hotel is a work of art, hushed, ultra-modern. Our room had lots of fun features such as an all glass bathroom with a privacy screen that descended at the touch of a button. We didn't eat at any of their three Michelin-rated restaurants, but rather prowled the Pijp district. A local told us that it's the Amsterdam version of the Latin Quarter of Paris. It's a laid back residential district with streets lined with cafes, coffee shops, and bars and a very active street life. We had a wonderful time talking to the staff and fellow diners, watching the street life, admiring the incredible variety of homemade contraptions attached to bicycles to carry human and other cargo. Though we didn't go to the central district, there is a streetcar line half a block from the restaurant that goes right to the inner perimeter. There are shuttle buses from the airport, or you can spring for a 30 Euro taxi ride. The Okura isn't homey, but it is beautiful. And the Pijp district is a wonderful place to explore.
We stayed here for a couple of days. The hotel is a couple of miles outside the old town but we walked it in 40 minutes or so. Three of the four restaurants are Michelin starred with prices to reflect at 200 euros per couple. The fourth restaurant has a very reasonable table de hote for 37 euros. Breakfast was 50 euros per couple and not worth the money in my opinion. As most bookings are room only you have to have a very large holiday spend to eat here. The rooms are excellent and we used the room service one night which I enjoyed and the service was 5 stars. The niggles.... One tea bag per couple for a five star establishment with only powdered milk on offer. I left a note written in Dutch which had been read as it was moved asking for more tea bags and fresh milk but it was ignored. I had to chase the turn down staff whom promptly resolved it. On the second night we were catching up on sleep when the turn down service began knocking at the door I asked them to return after 8pm but they were back within 30 minutes which was really annoying. The staff though pleasant are not as welcoming as other resorts. The night we had room service my wife specifically asked for beef to be well done and it arrived rare in the middle so she decided not to eat the beef. I should have remonstrated but I had already complained about other issues and felt like a pest so decided not to. Overall would I visit again probably not.
Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in March. In Amsterdam there are lots of hotels to choose from, what we liked about this one was the facilities available, views from the rooms and the good links to the trams to get us to and from the centre. Despite the fact that this is a very good hotel, we weren't overly impressed with some things about it. Firstly the good things. - Lovely room: This room had a very comfortable bed, a bathroom with a double basin, shower and a bath with a tv you could watch whilst in it. It was very spacious and very clean! (we stayed in one of the executive rooms) - Helpful reception staff: We were shown a map of Amsterdam when we checked in, which the receptionist went over places of interest and things to see and do. She also organised our tram tickets. - A nice executive lounge: We enjoyed having some drinks and light food when relaxing in here. It is regularly checked and restocked. - Swimming pool and hot tub: This is a really nice feature and we enjoyed a morning relaxing in here. The things we didn't think were great: - The food: We were told on arrival that it was better to go elsewhere to get a breakfast. I personally like eating in the hotel but we took the advice and went into central Amsterdam to get some. The restaurants inside weren't really to my taste and their wasn't much on the menu which took my fancy. I appreciate the fact that the food is of a very high standard but i would prefer a few more light meals to be available especially if you come in at a late hour to check in. - Value for money: The hotel is high end so inevitably the prices are going to be a bit higher however for the money we paid i don't feel we got enough included. I think there should be a complimentary spa treatment instead of just access to the spa for example. - The coffee machine: I was here for 3 nights and within this time i could not get it to work. I am not a technophobe and even after asking staff this would still not make me a drink. Sometimes simple is best and i would have preferred a kettle as i only wanted a cup of tea! - Room service: I wasn't very impressed that staff were unlocking our room and coming in to ask to do things or check things. I understand that they were being conscientious but more than once they knocked, I was having a shower and because I didn't answer they came in. I then had to poke my head round the door to tell them to go. Overall I had a good stay in this hotel and a lovely time in Amsterdam. This is purely some constructive feedback to make this hotel appeal to more people and to improve the service.
Anyone visiting Amsterdam should consider staying here. Martijn, Head Concierge, has put together the finest team I have ever encountered. They are professional, personable, and knowledgeable. They know precisely where to get on each electric tram to get to your destination. They know which canal cruise company is the best. One member even told me that if we took a cab back to the hotel and discovered that the driver would not take a credit card, the hotel would pay him and simply put the charge on our bill. The hotel is modern and very attractive. The breakfast buffet was outstanding.
